At dk, we offer not just some of the best pregnancy workout gear in Australia, but some of the highest quality activewear that you could find across the globe.
Australia’s Best Pregnancy Workout Gear
In 2017, dk was founded in Brisbane, Australia. Our aim was to promote body positivity and acceptance in the activewear world, and one of the best ways to do this was by releasing our line of pregnancy workout gear. We are dedicated to supporting Australians and Australian jobs, and that’s why we are proud to be 100% Australian owned and operated, from our designers to our manufacturers.
What Is Our Favourite Pregnancy Gym Gear?
As a brand, we’re not supposed to have favourites. But of course, we absolutely do. At dk, we love a good workout tight. Especially ones that come up and over our bump and keep us – and bub of course – comfortable, and supported. Of course, we’re talking about our ‘Lotus’ maternity long tight.
The ‘Lotus’ long maternity tight is an actual full length tight. They’re perfect for everyday wear, or for working out. This is because they’re made from our elixir fabric, which is as soft as butter and sustainably manufactured. As was mentioned, they’re a full length tight, covering down to the ankle as opposed to the usual mid-calf cut off, and they’re high waisted enough to fully cover your bump instead of only coming up to a mid-rise height.
In the lotus long maternity tight, there is a bamboo lining, which keeps you cool and comfortable if you choose to work out, and also a soft encased elastic, which keeps the leggings in place whilst you’re walking around doing your day to day activities.

Looking For The Best Pregnancy Gym Gear In Australia?
We were founded in 2017, with the aim in mind of bringing body positivity and empowerment to the activewear industry. In addition to this, dk are a 100% Australian owned and operated company, with all of our activewear being manufactured right here in Australia – Brisbane, to be specific! There are several benefits to this which we’ll expand on later.
Exercise During Your Pregnancy With Our Gym Gear
Yes, you can exercise during pregnancy. This means you have the perfect excuse to let everyone see your super cute, supportive, and comfortable pregnancy gym gear. It is recommended that you avoid doing certain exercises; however, there are several that are specifically recommended to do during pregnancy, such as pilates.
Doing pilates during your pregnancy helps to maintain your abdominal muscle tone. This supports your growing bub, and your bump while minimising back pain. It can also help with labour, as it prepares you for pushing. Whilst mat classes can sometimes be an issue as your bump gets bigger and so much of the class takes place lying on your back, you can get around this by using an angled foam spine support, which will keep your head above your stomach.
Yoga is also a great way to strengthen your core. Doing prenatal yoga also improves your flexibility whilst allowing you to gain a sense of calm in an otherwise chaotic time. This is in thanks to its gentle movements, and the strong emphasis on breathing and meditation. It’s advisable in the 2nd trimester although beyond that, you should avoid the more complex poses that require twists which tug on your bump, and moves that require you to lie on your stomach for long periods, headstands and other inverted poses.
DK’s Pregnancy Gym Gear Is Australian Made
The Australia Made, Australia Grown logo is one that is a registered certification trademark. The AMAG logo comes with a strict set of rules (Code of Practice) governing how it can be used. Products must be registered with AMCL and must meet the criteria in the Code of Practice to use the logo. To us here at dk, we’re proud to be a brand and a company that are entitled to use the AMAG logo. This is because we want to promote home-grown talent. Our aim in supporting this ‘home-grown talent’ is to support industries and jobs here in Australia.
In addition to this, having the ability to use the AMAG logo means that we have control over how our garments are made, and most importantly, the conditions within the factory that our garments are made in. We want to ensure fair working conditions for everyone involved in our manufacturing process, from our founder Danielle to our designers. We also manufacture all our own products here in Brisbane.
We promise to never compromise on fit, function, or fashion. That's why all of our garments are designed and manufactured right here in Australia. This includes our plus size activewear and our line of plus size workout clothes. Plus, with our worldwide shipping you can get your fix of workout clothes anywhere you go. We look forward to hearing from you.Read Less
